Theater History

This theater was built from 1902-1903 and was originally operated by Henry B. Harris, who died in the Titanic in 1912. His widow continued to operate the theater until she was forced the sell it in the Depression. It then became a radio studio for CBS, a television studio for NBC, an adult film theater, a movie theater, and a nightclub. It reopened as a Broadway theater in 2017 and is currently operated by Ambassador Theatre Group (ATG). Recent productions include Death of a Salesman, Plaza Suite, American Utopia, Burn This, and Head Over Heels.

Merrily We Roll Along at the Hudson Theatre

Merrily We Roll Along

Spanning three decades in the entertainment business, Merrily We Roll Along charts the turbulent relationship between composer Franklin Shepard and his two lifelong friends — writer Mary and lyricist & playwright Charley. An inventive, cult-classic ahead of its time, Merrily We Roll Along features some of Stephen Sondheim’s most celebrated and personal songs. Maria Friedman first directed the musical at London’s Menier Chocolate Factory which subsequently transferred to the Harold Pinter Theatre to critical acclaim—the most five-star reviews in West End history—winning the Olivier Award for Best Musical.

The cast includes: Jonathan Groff, Daniel Radcliffe, and Lindsay Mendez.
